Hoya Retusa (Hoya retusa) is a Hoya plant that produces spindly, waxy leaves and is ideal as a hanging plant. As your Hoya retusa succulent matures, it will bloom white and pink star-shaped flowers. From India, this grass-like semi-succulent Hoya will cascade down the edges of a planter or shelf and can grow well past 4 feet long.

They love bright, indirect light but don’t leave them in direct sun for more than a few hours. If you want to take your succulent outside, try placing it on a patio that receives plenty of indirect light and shade. When caring for your Hoya, allow for its soil to dry in between watering; this will help prevent any risk of diseases.

How to Care for Hoya Retusa Plants

After you purchase your Hoya Retusa Plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to ensure your plant stays happy and healthy for years to come!

What is the soil for Hoya Retusa Succulents?

What is the soil for Hoya Retusa Succulents?

The best soil for Hoya Retusa Plants is a well-balanced mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite that dries some between watering but takes a long time to compact. Typically, any reputable potting mix will work well and includes those ingredients. Adding a granular, slow-release fertilizer while planting is a good way to help the plant thrive in the transplanting transition. However, if the soil you’ve chosen already has fertilizer incorporated in, there will be no need to add additional fertilizer.

How do I Water Hoya Retusa Plants?

How do I Water Hoya Retusa Plants?

Hoya Retusa Plants should receive water relatively infrequently, as the plants like to dry out some between watering. The easiest way to tell if a plant needs water is by the weight of the container. If the container is heavy and the foliage is upright, chances are good the plant doesn’t need water, whereas a light pot and limp foliage mean the plant needs some water. Sometimes, water pours out of the container without being retained by the soil. Soaking the dry potting mix in a small dish or saucer can be a beneficial way to solve this problem. If you’re unsure, it is always better to let the plant go dry instead of drenching it with water. Moisture meters are another easy way to tell if plants need water and usually come with a guide to indicate what moisture level different plants require.

How Much Sunlight Does My Hoya Retusa Plant Need?

How Much Sunlight Does My Hoya Retusa Plant Need?

As a tropical plant, Hoyas love lots of bright sunlight. However, indirect sunlight is key to their success; direct sunlight will be too much for your succulent to handle. Filtered lighting will give your plant plenty of light while shielding it from getting scorched by direct sunlight. You will know if your plant is receiving too much light because its leaves will curl up and turn brown. Try placing your plant in a south or south-west facing window. If your home does not have sufficient lighting, try using an artificial grow light for your plant.

When should I fertilize my Hoya Retusa?

When should I fertilize my Hoya Retusa?

Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble (liquid quick release) and granular, slow-release fertilizers. Jack’s Classic Indoor plant food works well as a powder, quick-release fertilizer. When it is mixed with water, it will quickly provide nutrients to a plant that has been in a container for an extended time. On the other hand, Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor is an option as a granular, slow-release fertilizer to apply while potting and planting. Any fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants transition to a new environment.
